The Greeting Farm and CCEE

Always there for you.

It's TGF RELEASE DAY and there's NO April Fool's joke here when we say that ALL NEW RELEASES are now available in the TGF Store!

We hope you've enjoyed our previews this week and are SO excited to welcome Get Well by Marina Neira. , Stamping Anya, Eric, Dee Dee, and Oliver & Amelia "Buddies" to the TGF Family of rubber! Today is a GREAT day and we're so happy you're along for the ride!

Today we are also excited and honored to announce the 1st "TGF Cares" Charity Card Drive. This is something that TGF has been wanting to do for a long time and we have finally been able to put together a card drive for a cause very close to our hearts.

A few years ago, Jessica was introduced to a family who was only a few weeks away from losing their two-year old daughter, whose name was also Jessica. Through this terrible tragedy, the family couldn't say enough about how wonderful the Ronald McDonald House was to them, specifically the one near the Fairview Children's Hospital near Minneapolis, MN. (please see Jessica's blog for more on this touching story and how TGF customers can help put a smile on the faces of many in need of them!)

Saddle Up April

There are so many sick children whose families do nothing short of moving mountains for these kids to help them get well. Not only is it important to lift the spirits of these courageous children, but also the families-the parents, siblings, and relatives during all of the emotional ups and downs of a child's fight for life.

TGF is proud and honored to be collecting cards that will go to the RMH in Minneapolis as well as the Fairview Children's Hospital, parents, and siblings of these petite patients during the long and brave journey of theirs. Be sure to stop by the TGF BLOG today for complete details on this special contest close to our hearts.

*This contest will run all month long. Today, 4/1/10 through 4/30/10. ALL ENTRIES must be POSTMARKED by 4/30/10 to qualify for any prizes/recognition.

*There will be 4 prizes total. ONE GRAND PRIZE and three First prizes. Here's how it will work:

For every 5 cards sent in, you will receive ONE entry for the prize drawings. So for this contest, much like the PP Olympics, the more you create the more chances you have to win, but in the end, all entries will go into a hat and Random winners will be drawn to give more people a chance to win :) We will keep track of how many entries you're alloted based on the cards you upload in the Galleria, which brings us to our next point:

You will have all month long to upload your cards to the TGF GALLERIA>CONTESTS/CHALLENGES>TGF CARES. You must, with the EXCEPTION OF SENTIMENTS, use ONLY TGF Stamps on any and all qualifying cards.

*THE IMPORTANT "FINE PRINT"

Please SEND IN ALL CARDS AT ONCE. When you are ready to mail your cards, please email Jessica for the address/contact info.

Please read the QUALIFYING stamp criteria carefully above, thank you!

The inside of your card should say something generic, as we don't know if your card will be going to the child or family member/sibling.

Here's an example of what Jessica will be writing in the inside of her cards:

"Thinking of you and sending lots of well wishes on your journey..."

And now...for what's up for grabs:

GRAND PRIZE WINNER will take home the ENTIRE APRIL RELEASE plus (1) 4x6 in stock set of choice PLUS a surprise gift (it's a big one, trust us!)

3 FIRST PRIZE winners will choose 2 IN-STOCK 4x6 sets of their choice EACH!

We hope that our first ever TGF CARES card drive is a huge success and can't thank you enough for wanting to be a part of it.

Thank for sticking with me for such a long post, all the info is important to us at The Greeting Farm!!

My First card is all for my CCEE Challenge. This week you need to have a critter on your card. As you can see I have lots of SWEET CRITTERS today.
